We have coturnix quail eggs in the incubator. Wednesday was supposed to be the hatch day. We heard peeping and saw movement the day before. It's now Friday and nothing. The temps and humidity have been all over the place, just not working right. They've been stable today though. So yesterday morning my husband decided to start cracking them open to see what was going on. First 4 were duds, no quail in them. So he cracked the next thinking they were all infertile and there was a live bird, fully formed with a big yolk. So we left them. Still today nothing. Should we try to crack them out slowly or should I toss them? I have another 50 eggs to put in but this was our first go at hatching quail and I'm really upset that it didn't work out. The incubator is only two months old and it worked fine on my last two chicken hatches. *just checked another egg (put a small hole in it) and the quail is alive. Dh said it wasn't too wet or two dry in there. Day 19 still no pips!
